It took him 801 games and Alex Ovechkin is now part of the 500 goal club. He is the 5th fastest in NHL history to reach the mark. He added another for number 501 when the Caps beat the Sens 7-1. He is 30 years old and it will be interesting to see just how many he can get for his career. Like him or not, theres no debate that he is one of the best goal scorers to ever play.
The Blackhawks beat the Avalanche 6-3 for their 7th win in a row. The Panthers beat the Oilers 2-1 to stretch their franchise record win streak to 12 games.
Only 4 games on tonight so let’s get to the Tips.
Bruins vs Rangers Betting Tips:
Both teams have 4-5-1 records over their last 10 games. They are ranked 3rd and 4th overall in goals per game.
This is the 2nd meeting between these teams with the first being won 4-3 by the Bruins.
Both teams are in a slump so they need to get back into the win column so this game has the potential to be high scoring.
Panthers vs Canucks Betting Tips:
The Panthers incredible run continued yesterday with a victory over Edmonton. We haven’t tipped the Panthers much during this run – because for whatever reason, we can not bring ourselves to do so. Every time we look at it, we’re convinced this is the night they lose and all we can see is arguments for the other team winning which usually leads to us not tipping the game at all.
However the Panthers have continually shown up, and continually found ways to win. Yet the odds are still always very respectable for them to win. I mean tonight they’re on a B2B going up against the Canucks – a team who have looked solid at home lately and also took the Panthers to a 4-4 tie in regulation just a couple of weeks ago – in Florida.
But the Panthers seem to be for real, and until they are stopped we’re going to jump on the Panthers betting bandwagon – admittedly way too late. If tonight is the night they lose then so be it.
Panthers to win.
